The twist here was, none of these women were pregnant when the day started. This event caught the attention of eccentric billionaire- Sir Reginal Hargreeves, who went on to adopt as many babies as he could and adopted seven.
He trained them and formed the superhero team- The Umbrella Academy. However, he couldn’t be a great father, and all the siblings ended up parting ways.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3: Renewal News & Release Date
While Netflix hasn’t officially released any information about The Umbrella Academy Season 3 yet, What’s On Netflix has revealed that the show is unofficially renewed. Earlier on, ProductionWeekly had also reported that The Umbrella Academy is renewed and will start production sometime in October 2020. Obviously, this news isn’t a big surprise. Fans were anyways confident that the third season would happen. The show is immensely popular ever since it released in 2019.
Some other reports reveal that the creators have already started the pre-production process of the show. However, they do not plan to start production before the end of this year. Back in February 2019, showrunner Steve Blackman revealed that it takes about 18 months to produce one season of the comedy show. So, if the team decides to start working on the show by the end of this year, we might get to see The Umbrella Academy Season 3 sometime in 2022.
Did The Umbrella Academy Start A New Timeline?
The second season left all the viewers with a number of questions. Everybody wants answers to all of them. One big question among all of them is- when and where are the siblings now? Where did they get in the second season? In the final moments of the previous installment, everybody believed that The Umbrella Academy siblings had used the briefcase from The Commission and came back to 2019. However, they had just landed in the day after the apocalypse. They indeed found their home to be intact and the world exactly where they left it. Then things take a twist. All of them come to the library where they see Sir Reginald waiting to greet them.
They all become really surprised past their arrival. Reginald then tells them that they haven’t reached home instead they have come into The Sparrow Academy. The major question here is, how did that happen? How did The Umbrella Academy end up in the wrong timeline? Did they create a new timeline unknowingly in their journey of the second season? Perhaps The Umbrella Academy Season 3 would answer these questions.
What’s The Sparrow Academy?
The second season leaves us with a bizarre cliffhanger introducing the mystery of the The Sparrow Academy. So, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will tackle this mystery, without a doubt. While we don’t have much information on what all this is, the comics from which the show is inspired gives some clues. The third comic in the series- “Hotel Oblivion,” reveals that Reginald had sent all the villains defeated by The Umbrella Academy in deep space. Now, they have come back to earth and are seeking revenge from Hargreeves’ clan. The whole Umbrella Academy is having a hard time tackling these villains. But then, a group of superheroes who look like them enters. They are very similar but wear bird patches rather than umbrella patches.
The creator of the original comic book series- Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá recently revealed a few details about their upcoming fourth comic called- “Sparrow Academy.” They revealed that this comic book would bring in a very big revelation in The Umbrella Academy universe. It will be something that has been hidden for a long time. The siblings will come to know about many things that are going on behind the scenes.
Not just that, siblings will come to know about the true nature of many characters that have been with them for the longest time. Way revealed that the series would finally start answering the question about the other babies that were born that day at that very moment. He even hits that The Umbrella Academy siblings won’t be the only ones in the world anymore. It looks like Reginald had adopted many more kids than just the seven special ones. He had trained other groups as The Sparrow Academy.
Who Will Be The New Villain?
By the end of the second season, Harlan had lost all the powers. However, we came to know that, for the very least, he has telekinetic abilities. When the next season comes, Harlan will be about 64 years old. So, he will have a lot of experience with his abilities. It is also quite unlikely that he would forget Vanya and the whole Umbrella Academy at that time. So, could he be the next potential villain? Or will he become The Umbrella Academy siblings’ ally? Only the time will tell. We will keep an eye on all the upcoming updates about The Umbrella Academy Season 3 and pass it all on to you. So, you stay tuned. Also, we can expect that Netflix will soon officially renew the show.
